Hannah Montana Guitar Birthday Cake

For this Princess' birthday she went back and forth a million times with what kind of cake she wanted. She finally decided (and this is exactly how she said it) "I want a Hannah Montana cake in the shape of a guitar. Made out of rice crispy treats because I don't like birthday cake. Oh and with strawberries."

This is what I came up with...




Not easy I tell ya! The problem I was having was how was I going to make it look "Hannah Montana-ish" without putting a picture of her on there. I wasn't going to do that! I was hoping that if I copy the writing it would be good enough. I still don't know if you can even tell, but she was happy and that is all that counts!
As far as the strawberries go, well I just made chocolate covered strawberries. It was a perfect companion to rice crispy treats with strawberry frosting. I really don't think the carb count was any less than regular old cake. But when it is the diabetic's birthday I wasn't going to complain.
Anyone have a good low carb substitute for frosting?
So there are the birthday cakes for this year. I am so glad to have the last 3 months over with. Why didn't someone warn me about having a child in February, then one in March and again in April? Come May I am pretty tired!
Check back in December for my hubby's birthday cake request of the Millenium Falcon.

i am with her on the rice crispy thing, i like them way better then birthday cake. was always into the DQ ice cream cakes myself, not that i can have them anymore, looks like i am going to have to be inventive my next birthday too.

very cute cake! best way to get a personalized cake is to make it yourself after all.

Hey honey,
I actually have a low-carb sub for frosting...of course I have to find the recipe in a Clean Eating magazine, so it'll take some time. Hopefully I find it before Princess's next bday! (Don't let me forget...!)

cool whip free/light as frosting. Probably wouldn't work so great on rice krispies--but it is great on cake!!! I'm sure if you google there are also recipies to mix it with sugar free jello or sugar free pudding.
